FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Very little has separated Arkansas and
LSU the past five years.
More of the same is expected Saturday when the No. 6 Tigers
(10-1, 6-1 SEC) travel to Little Rock's War Memorial Stadium to
face the No. 12 Razorbacks (9-2, 5-2).
Each of the last five games between the two schools has been
decided by five points or fewer, with LSU winning three of the
five. Two of those have gone into overtime: Arkansas' 50-48
triple-overtime win over the then-No. 1 Tigers in 2007 and LSU's
33-30 win last season.
The Razorbacks have won two of the last three, during which the
cumulative scores for both teams is 111-111.
"That's part of this rivalry," Arkansas defensive end Jake
Bequette said. "It's a hard-fought game every game. It's always
decided by a few points, and we're expecting nothing less than that
